thanks elainemay for the pattern, i absolutely adore it!
this is a little too small for me, i unpicked it couple of times, tried my best to take it out. finally it fits! :) i’ve also added ruffle to the bottom cos it’s too short, my bad – i realised i forgot to add length AFTER i cut everything.
I also had to hand sew the ruffles to the neckline so it stays flat, the gathered fabric is too thick. If i’m going to make another one (very likely!!), i’ll go with single layer.
I learnt a lot in making this dress, the next one will be better :)
